ARIES FORECAST

(February 19 – March 19, ’20)

You’ll be cleaning out the closets, finishing up old projects and tying up your loose ends this month.  Following a month of stimulating social activity, you’re ready to retreat and put some quality time into sorting, filing & clearing out the clutter.  You can be particularly effective in dealing with old issues on 2/23 (New Moon), 25 & 3/8.  With 4 planets currently activating your career sector, your professional goals can be well-supported by taking care of those pesky details (especially on 2/20, 22, 28, 3/11, 14 & 19).  Redefine priorities, re-evaluate procedures, personnel and systems — strive for a more efficient, functional work environment.  You’ll be well-rewarded for your efforts!

With Mercury retrograde (through 3/9), you may want to review your methods and strengthen relationships with employees or co-workers.  At the same time, clear up any of your (or your partner’s) unresolved health issues.  Watch a tendency to overload your schedule or to ask too much of others, however around the Full Moon on 3/9.  Focus, instead, on solving whatever problems arise.  Completion is the name of the game!  Although you’re much happier starting things than finishing them, keep in mind that the more of your backlog you can clear out, the easier it will be to move forward once the Sun moves on to ARIES on 3/20!

It’s been a time for improving your self-image & appearance since Venus entered ARIES on 2/7; take a break, however, on 2/28 & 3/3 – and don’t try so hard to make things happen.  From 3/4 on, your personal finances can become more stable and secure; it’s a good time to stock up on necessities, get your expenditures under control and purchase household comforts.  A new source of income (or special gift) could come from left field on 3/8.  Consider making some improvements to your diet in the month ahead.  Between 3/4 & 15, take some spontaneous time-out to catch up with friends.

LONG-TERM FORECAST:   You are currently in the midst of a powerful transformation in both your personal & professional life while Pluto, your ruling planet, transits CAPRICORN (20082024).  During this 16-year cycle, new career directions will be emerging, as outgrown pathways either fall apart or reorganize to higher levels.  Increased opportunities for leadership & public visibility will also arise during this period, so take charge of your life, reclaim your personal power and stay in integrity.  You have the energy, courage & resources available to you now to accept new challenges, take some big risks and actualize your objectives. You also are experiencing a newly-found sense of self-discipline and commitment these days, which along with a little patience and follow-through, will serve you well in manifesting your desires.

With Neptune now in PISCES (2/3/12–1/26/26), you’ll be researching alternative healing modalities, clearing out any psychological cobwebs and awakening to hidden talents & psychic abilities.  It’s the ideal time to update your skills, clean out the closets, get organized and make your life more functional.  You may find yourself working with those who share similar interests, dreams and spiritual values.

Now that Uranus is in TAURUS  (since 5/15/18), you are ready to make some major changes in your personal finances, value systems & dietary habits.  During this 7-year cycle, unexpected or unusual sources of income or investment opportunities could arise; financial freedom could be on the horizon.  You’re likely to explore alternative approaches to nutrition, supplements and food preparation.  Release old attachments & possessions and make way for the new!

Your personal & professional goals will undergo a major restructuring while Saturn transits CAPRICORN (12/19/17–12/16/20); you could assume more responsibility, mastery and leadership in your chosen field. Whether you’re building a new career, solidifying your current one, running an organization or wanting greater control over your life, you could achieve your objectives with patience(!), discipline and conscientious effort.  During this 3-year cycle, much can be accomplished of long-lasting value; go for what you want — and you’re likely to get it!

Once Saturn takes its initial steps into AQUARIUS on 3/21/20 (through 7/1/20), you’ll begin to restructure your social alliances & activities; it’s time to shed outgrown relationships and to solidify those friendships that are meaningful & productive.   You’ll be drawn into collaborative projects and cooperative efforts with others who are committed to similar interests, values and visions.  Many of your goals can be achieved by aligning with responsible, dependable individuals, particularly those who are older or authorities in their profession.  Great benefits can arise from mixing business with pleasure during this cycle!

With Jupiter now in CAPRICORN since 12/2/19, opportunities for professional advancement or increased public visibility will begin to emerge.  You’re coming into your power during this upcoming year and could take on a significant leadership role in your career or organization.  Aim high!  You may find it helpful to review what was going on in your life when this same cycle was in effect 12 years ago (12/12/071/5/09).
